Local indie act Dear and the Headlights is featured in a session with Daytrotter that was just offered up. Daytrotter's four-song postings are sort of Chicago's answer to The Peel Sessions, with up-and-coming acts doing a semi-live set recorded in the course of a couple hours and put up for download. Daytrotter has some cache in the indie scene, so this is big for DatH.
Dear's singer Ian Metzger also got drawn up a nifty illustration (above) by their staff illustrator Johnnie Cluney. Pretty damn cool. Thanks to Psyko Steve for the heads up. --Martin Cizmar
